Most time if you shift focus from full screen movie it will be better to come out full screen mode automatically.
Here is a usecase where it is better to keep movie continue playing in full screen mode.

I have a monitor connected to laptop, hence I should be able to work on some other application on laptop screen while the movie continuing in full screen on the big external monitor.
So I would like disable automatically coming out from full screen mode, if full screen lost focus.

Steps:-
1. Connect your laptop to an external monitor.
2. Open firefox on the external monitor.
3. Open another application (say, notepad) on laptops screen.
4. On firefox play a movie.
5. Goto full screen mode.
6. Now with mouse move focus to notpad.

Result:-
Movie playing in firefox comes out of full screen.

Expected:-
When user work on notepad movie should continue playing in the big screen on full screen mode.
